After Rumi

by Jay Ramsay


Original Language English

Of course we tell each other everything,
That's what lovers are supposed to do.

Can we make a blossoming
With only one pair of hands?

The pearl we are has to be cracked open,
Before it becomes a pearl.

Don't fear your mouth
There's nothing to lose,
Only the cage of your unspeaking...

These words you are brought to
Are another kind of river --

The sweet water that wants
To flow through you like fire.
